Sampled at St Pete Creative Loafing Beerfest. On draft. Incredible hops balance, crisp and almost spicy. A very well balanced imperial IPA!

I had this on cask at the Blind Tiger in NYC. I thought it was very good, exceedingly hoppy, and very crisp.
This beer had a fiarly dull copper gold color, limited head with large bubbles, a very dryly bitter aroma and lots of hop bitterness. I didn’t detect a lot of fruitiness; flavor was quite crisp and good. Mouthfeel was exceedingly smooth.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear amber with very little head. Nose is hopped, but I wouldn’t say overly powerful. Flavor is hopped,yes. You get the pine tones and that syrup like flavor quality to it. But is stays smooth and even and never goes over the line. Feel is thick on liquid and good on the bubble. Overall a verysmooth DIPA and well worth trying. If you want an insane hop bomb, this is not the one. If you want smooth and even and well crafted, this is more your style.

On tap at the Rev. Pours a cloudy orangey, amber with a small white ring around the glass. Aroma is sweet tropical fruit, citrus, and light floral notes. Flavour is grapefruit, tropical fruit, residual sweetness, a medium bitterness and a little bit of alcohol. Quite session able for a dipa.

Gold cloudy pour. Thin head that sticks around. Nice lacing. Aroma of cheese and apples. Taste is a little fruity. Light grass. A little sugar and toffee. I wasn’t a huge fan of this one.

Slight cascade hop aroma. Taste is sweet like sucrose and a slight amount of hops. Very, very boring.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Amity Hall, NYC. Pours clear golden with thin white head. Big citrus and pine in the aroma. Citrus flavor at first but really becomes much more akin to pine shortly after. This brew is all about the hop with very little malt profile stepping in. Overall finishes clean but ’pine’ does begin to linger a bit as you finish the pint.

Very good copper pour w/ a long retaining white head that leaves lacing. The aroma is fairly hoppy but not over the top. The taste is refreshing, clean, & just a tad bitter. It’s wonderful on the palate for the style & goes down easy for 9%. Great ipa!
